Winston. a beautiful Weimeraner, was pushed from a moving truck. When he was diagnosed with heartworm, SPCA volunteers donated funds for treatment. Today, the smiles on Winston and his BFF says it all. 

Founded 1980, the SPCA of Polk County is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, working with the community and other rescue organizations. We rescue as many adoptable pets as we have space for at our shelter or temporary foster homes until permanent, loving homes can be found. Occasionally, we are overflowing and must turn-away animals.

We operate completely on donations from our supporters. We are not funded by other SPCA organizations nor do we receive federal funding. Our staff are all volunteers, working only for a lick, a cuddle, or a wag.

​Our goal is to protect animals in need, caring for them to the best of our ability. First, we try to reunite them with their owners. Then, we seek suitable homes for animals without owners. Only when absolutely necessary do we euthanize.

Burt was left at the SPCA as a tiny kitten. One eye kept getting infected. The vet said the the blind eye, likely injured as a baby, should be removed.  He had lived in a crate until forever family took him home. His first step on grass was amazing.

Riley, at the top of the picture, was  a stray in pretty sad shape when he arrived at the SPCA.  His hard times didn't affect his loving personality.  Now he has a wonderful loving family and a new playmate!
